This absolutely tore my heart out. Your descriptions are beautiful and poignant. I love everything about this.
Deep, haunting, intriguing, sad. Your story is all of these things. You left me with a desire to know much more about Lilly and Geraldo.
This is SO thought provoking,and so beautifully written. I'm not sure I "got" it all. I have lots of questions. Very well done, though.

This is powerful and sad, almost as melancholy as what I think Geraldo's concerto would sound like. Expert word weaving here. Beautiful descriptions.

I especially liked what Geraldo said: "God can make the most beautiful music out of anything. Sometimes, though, He chooses to compose our concertos one note at a time. If we are patient and give Him enough time, He will finish a masterpiece." Now that's a powerful message.
This is so beautiful, I read it twice...a very moving story.
Wow. I had to read this several times. I didn't want to miss any of the details. Excellent writing. Bravo. You are a master and really make the reader want to stop,ponder, and think. (I actually thought this might be your story before the hints. I was holding a baby while I read it the first time and couldn't type a commet.) Excellent!!

This beautifully written story brought tears to my eyes. Awesome.
I can't stand it ... I'm going to cry all day! Thank you for this beautifully written story. I have a heart for people who are mentally ill, so this really touched me.
You have revealed mastery of writing here--wonderful characterization and atmosphere and pathos, all combined

I'll say it again--we need a symbol for stories which require a box of kleenex! Great writing, truly blessed.
You have a wonderful way of setting a mood and delivering a masterful punch. This is just tremendously written - the way you gave voice to not just the characters but more importantly to their very souls.
